rodriguez yet. we are awaiting a release from major league baseball. mlb source tells him there will be a release and no presser. it looks like they are leaning to a couple of releases and a lot of speculation that a rod will be suspended from this year and the entirity of 2014. and the commissioner could ban him for life under the collective bargaining agreement. it could be a major stand off here and we await the major developments. >> this is a shocking scene in california. a power plant implosion goes terribly wrong. and hundreds of people had gathered in bakersville to watch the demolition and flying snap nel injured some. >> they would implode this thing and a huge crowd gathered to see it and people were camping out overnight to make sure they had front row seats and they set up a security perimeter around the plant and the fire department pushed it back further to be safe. it was not far enough. and remember, in an implosion, things are supposed to fall in and listen to the implosion and watch the shrapnel fly. looking at the shrapnel. it is difficult to see. the p
association by no means was that softening there for the statement from michael weiner, the head of the mlb pa after the suspension was doled out where he said a-rod was not treated fairly. they think bud selig went out of his power here. they are going to fight for alex rodrigu rodriguez. >> i like bud selig. the first time the guy used drugs, he broke the rules. he got caught. then he said he wouldn't do it again. then he got caught doing it again. he tried to cover it up and now he's finally caught and appealing. why would you take his side? why would anybody take his side unless they were a union shop steward. >> in this case, that's the case. does anybody who's objective take his side? >> it's not a matter of taking rodriguez' side. he is due rights. he was not going to take the medicine that major league baseball was doling out, swallow it and in essence ending his career. you don't think he's coming out after being out of baseball for two years and say you know what, i'll take my $61 million and go home. in all due respect to bud selig and the owners, baseball profited during the years
. what we have right now in terms of the game, it's a waiting game to see what mlb decides to do specifically in terms of that suspension. >> jason, let me jump in. i think rachel nichols is about to break the news. rachel, what are you learning in the last 60 seconds that we haven't been talking? >> you may have seen me leaning over my desk. i was reading a press release from major league baseball. they have announced the suspensions of the 12 players, the players who have accepted their 50-game suspensions. they have not included alex rodriguez on that statement, so we are still waiting for the a-rod portion of this. but it is notable, 12 players suspended for using performance enhancing drugs. several star players on that list including johnny peralta of the detroit tigers, including nelson cruz of the texas rangers, guys who are basically saying, i give. you caught me. and they are accepting these suspensions. that is huge. we are still awaiting word of what's going to go on with alex rodriguez. interesting to see this trickle out the way it is. i mentioned that espn report t
growth hormone over the course of multiple years. mlb officials also alleging rodriguez attempted to cover up his violations and obstruct their investigation. rodriguez says he'll appeal. in the past, rodriguez has also denied a connection to the former head of biogenesis and taking peds from the clinic, but when asked more than once to clarify on monday, rodriguez dodged those questions. >> we will have a forum to discuss all of that and we will talk about it then. >> reporter: well, under the rules and regulation, rodriguez is allowed to keep playing while he appeals, but his all-star career forever tainted as well as the world of baseball. chris? >> appreciate the reporting from there, jason. >>> what does this mean for a-rod and for major league baseball? let's bring in rachel nichols joining us from rochester, new york. let's go through the punch points here. in perspective terms, what did yesterday mean historically for major league baseball? >> yeah, this is a big step forward for major league baseball. it basically told players we will find you. we don't need a positive te
on july 12th. that with mlb investigation about performance enhancing drugs. he also saw a new doctor without team approval. >>> despite his love of jogging and bicycle riding, he's always been a model of physical fitness. just last week underwent surgery to remove coronary artery or receive one after that was clogged. it's good news. >> with heart disease being the number one killer in our country, how can you be sure you're healthy enough to avoid the outcome. the doctor is here to reveal super foods to keep our heart healthy and help us live a longer life. nice to see you. >> nice to see you guys. >> what stands out like a sore thumb, i don't see any bread or processed carbohydrates. >> no processed foods. >> no processed food is a way to start. we have it broken down by color. start with red. tomatoes. >> red is lycopene, pigment that gives food coloring, a potent antioxidant. it can increase the build up of fatty plaque in the arteries, arthrosclerosis. >> what about citrus. >> think fiber. it works like a sticky glue i think so in test i think so to get cholesterol so you have i
completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but
